We chose West Wind for our first visit to Sanibel because of reviews here and were not disppointed. It's true that it is older than some properties and could do with a bit of a facelift in some areas but that does not detract from the overall experience. It offers good value and a quiet relaxed introduction to the Sanibel way of life. Our room was large and comfortable with wonderful Gulf front views just yards from the beach. The kitchenette was well equipped and ideal for cooking breakfast after an early morning walk on the beach. The restaurant is open for dinner on Fridays and Saturdays and offers good food and there are other dinner options close by. We loved Sanibel and hope to join the many who return regularly to the West Wind.
